We're heading into Winter fast here in South Africa. It's not quite this cold (it rarely snows in Cape Town) but my hands and fingers freeze up when I type these days.

Hi EveryoneLynne Huysamen asked me to send you a quick note to let you know she won't be able to log into Wealthy Affiliate for a while.
